Spring allergies can be such a pain in the butt! While we may be hard-pressed to ditch allergies entirely, certain teas can help relieve symptoms. Here are some of the best teas for spring allergies:

Green tea

Green Tea

Green tea contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the body, which can be helpful for easing allergy symptoms. It also contains a compound called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that can help boost the immune system.

Nettle Tea

Nettle tea is a natural antihistamine and can help relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing and runny nose. It contains histamine, which can help desensitize the body to other histamines that trigger allergy symptoms.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce swelling and irritation caused by allergies. It also has a relaxing effect, which can help soothe the mind and body.

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint tea contains menthol, which can help open up nasal passages and relieve congestion. It also has a cooling effect that can help soothe sore throats.

It’s important to note that while these teas can help relieve allergy symptoms, they should not be used as a substitute for medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have severe allergies or are experiencing persistent symptoms, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional.
